Hill Street Blues star Barbara Bosson in the role of Fay Furillo
The role of Fay Furillo, which Barbara Bosson played in the 1980s television programme Hill Street Blues, brought Barbara Bosson a great deal of fame. Hill Street Blues was broadcast on NBC from 1981 until 1987. Steven Bochco, who was married to the late performer at the time, was the one who conceived of the idea. Bosson was nominated for an Emmy five times in a row between 1981 and 1985 for her performance as Fay Furillo, the ex-wife of Hill Street District Captain Frank Furillo (played by Daniel J. Travanti). Her husband was let go from his job at the production business MTM Enterprises in 1985, during the middle of the sixth season, due to artistic and financial differences. As a result, she decided to leave the programme.
Barbara Bosson received a nomination for an Emmy Award for the second time in ten years for her performance as Miriam Grasson in the programme Murder One, which was also developed by her husband Steven.
In the 27 years that followed their marriage, Bosson and Bochco worked together on a number of television programmes before filing for divorce in 1997. Among these programmes are Richie Brockelman, which was a spin-off of The Rockford Files; Private Eye; Hooperman, in which she starred alongside John Ritter; and Cop Rock, which aired in the 1990s.
Her performance in the film “The Last Starfighter” from 1984 is regarded as one of her most iconic parts.
